The Mojave Resort has racked up several noteworthy press mentions in recent years. Travel + Leisure praises the resort, asking “Is there anything more indulgent than opening your door, padding across a lush lawn in your pajamas and bare feet, and picking your own grapefruit?” The laid-back boutique resort channels the Hollywood expat glamour of the mid-20th century from its spot in the Coachella Valley.
Start the morning off with a complimentary continental breakfast.
In-room amenities: minibar and TV with VCR (and access to a vintage-video library); some rooms also come with kitchenettes and fireplaces
Go for a swim in the outdoor pool.
Treat yourself to an outdoor spa treatment in one of the resort’s cabanas or an in-room spa service.
Things to do: The hotel is just a few minutes from El Paseo, Palm Desert’s main shopping thoroughfare, and the Gardens on El Paseo shopping mall.
Palm Desert, California: Shopping and Wildlife in Scenic Coachella Valley
Palm Desert shares the desert landscape and resort atmosphere of Palm Springs, about 20 miles to the northeast. It’s worth it to visit Palm Desert’s El Paseo, known as the Rodeo Drive of the desert for its art galleries, high-end boutiques, and brand-name retailers such as Gucci, Ralph Lauren, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Palm Desert is also a gateway town to the more than 750,000-acre Joshua Tree National Park, located less than 60 miles away. In addition to being the birthplace of Bono, the desert park is famous for its unusual geologic formations and mountains of twisted rock, ideal for rock climbing. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife including desert bighorn sheep, golden eagles, and coyotes.
For a guaranteed glimpse of wildlife, check out The Living Desert, a zoo, botanical garden, and animal hospital in Palm Desert. As you stroll throughout the various geographical regions—including North America and Africa’s Village WaTuTu—you will see flora and fauna indigenous to that area, which can include Mexican gray wolves, giraffes, or jaguars. The Living Desert also boasts a G-scale model train that winds its way through replicas of historical scenes, including a California mining and logging town and the Grand Canyon.
